mayo substitute healthy
This yogurt salad dressing is my favorite! It’s very creamy and flavorful and it tastes like mayo :). Although homemade mayonnaise is very tasty, I prefer to not use it for my salads. Homemade mayonnaise it is made from raw egg yolks and tons of vegetable oil and this isn’t quite healthy.
This delicious yogurt salad dressing it’s made from plain yogurt, hard boiled egg yolk, mustard, a bit of vegetable oil and lemon juice and it is seasoned with salt and pepper. It is very easy to make and you don’t need any special instruments to prepare it. You only need 1 bowl and a fork :).
As regarding the yogurt, you can use you favorite plain yogurt. You can use a low fat yogurt but you can also use a Greek yogurt. If you prepare the yogurt salad dressing with Greek yogurt it will be more creamy than a dressing made from low fat yogurt.
